Engulfed by the pitch darkness,
Amidst an eerie loneliness,
I dwell, smothered in sorrow and guilt,
In the ruins of the palace I had built.

Brushing me aside like a broken feather,
Despite my efforts to keep things together,
You eluded, actualizing my deepest fears,
The pillow gets drenched in silent tears.

Putting on a mask to hide my folly,
Appearing everywhere as jovial and jolly,
I'm shattered inside, struggling to survive...
Gradually sinking, with no hope to revive.

A spirited soul, once full of life,
Now wanders around, wounded by a knife.
Screaming for help through his silence,
Exhausted by the ongoing emotional violence.

I'm longing for a shoulder to share the weights,
A soothing voice to break all floodgates,
A caring soul who wouldn't get annoyed,
A loving heart to fill this emotional void.

Standing on one end of the broken bridge,
Tempted to jump off the dangerous ridge,
I'm tired of treading on a path so slippery,
Perhaps it's time to end all this misery...

Slashing the radial artery, on a dusk so gray,
The crimson fluid erupts, draining life away...
As the curtains close in front of my eyes,
It's time to say the final goodbye...
